The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin

Chris’s first review of the year

really liked it
Really enjoyed it and it totally exposed my lack of context for the Chinese cultural revolution. I thought I was reading about some weird future China, not something that happened in the past.

The science got a bit dense and difficult to read near the end, but it was still gripping and fairly easy to get through most of the book.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Chris’s last review of the year

it was amazing
The shifting view points could get confusing at times, but also made for real emotional experiences being able to empathize with so many characters in different sides of situations.

As a parent this book just hit so many things about the love AND anxiety of a parent and how that affects your children. I frequently found myself on the verge of tears for no particular reason at all
